Coastal Carolina University’s Department of Theater put on a wonderful performance of ‘She Kills Monsters’.
In this tale, Agnes Evans, portrayed by Quinn Jones, begins playing “Dungeons & Dragons” after she finds the notebook of her late sister, Tilly Evans, portrayed by Autumn McNutt, which was dedicated to information about the game.
With an amazing cast, this show came to live. Autumn McNutt, Quinn Jones, and Zach Montou, who played Orcus, put on an unforgettable performance. It was definitely fun and interesting to watch.
The costumes were done extremely well, thanks to the designer Maddie Prentice. The Bugbear costumes were my personal favorites.
The director, Benjamin Sota, was very proud of the whole production, and for good reason.
“Words do not express how proud I am of the cast and crew of this production and the way we have played the game,” he said in his director’s notes.
